Client: Department of Veterans Affairs
Location: White City, OR
Square Footage: 28,000
The design of the new buildings at the Veterans Domiciliary along Highway 62 in White City ensured the exterior facade reflected the existing historic architecture. The brick was selected to complement the original brick buildings. Functionally, the new buildings offer contemporary design and technology, increased patient capacity and space for related services.
Terry Mackey managed the construction of this design-build project replacing a 28,000 square foot wood framed dormitory and connecting corridors. The adjacent dorm buildings were occupied during the entire project. Site access from the North was very limited due to the congestion of the VA patients and staff, thus requiring detailed scheduling and coordination of the construction activities to ensure minimal interruptions to the VA patients and staff.
